Rediscoverd

Anyone who knows me, knows how important music is in my life. I have played the piano for over twenty years and I love to sing. When we moved into our apartment, I brought my piano but I rarely played because I didn't want to upset the neighbors. Well, I had to get a piece together for church so I was forced to play. It was so fun for me! I got out all my old music and was playing stuff I hadn't played in over a year. I am so grateful for music in my life. I feel it has really helped me to connect to people and to my Heavenly Father. Luckily, I married a guy who loves it as much as I do! I am rededicated to playing and hopefully my neighbors won't mind too much!

YOu were great on Sunday and totally inspired me to make my husband buy me a piano and start practicing again. I bet your neighbors would love to hear you play.

There are a lot worse things to hear through apartment walls! Besides, it's only a couple months more!

Amanda- I have been meaning to tell you what an amazing job you did on Sunday. I was very touched and moved by your musical number. I could listen to you play ALL day! Maybe we should be neighbors! :)

Come on now, weights dropping dude upstairs? He couldn't possibly complain about your AMAZING music. Amanda I am your neighbor and I would love to hear your piano filtering across the grass! Along with everyone else it was really beautiful on Sunday. You were like the pied piper. Katelyn thought we were walking right up the stand to you (not the quick diversion out of the chapel). Honestly, I can't blame her.

You played beautifully on Sunday! Sorry, I meant to tell you in YWs. Aden usually does his own thing during Sacrament meeting, but he totally looked up and paid attention while you were playing.

I was super impressed with your musical number on Sunday. You play beautifully! I SO wish that I had talent like that.

I am jealous! I wish I had that talent!

I"m glad to hear about your rededication. You know since we got a piano I haven't thought twice about the neighbors (but I decided just not to play after 10:00). No one's complained yet, so hopefully that's a good sign. What are some of your favorite pieces you've put together? I am looking for a fun one to practice and get good at. Let me know if you have any ideas!
